Pacific Northwest Seafood

One of the things we enjoy about visiting different parts of the United States or different parts of the world, is having the opportunity to sample the many different foods that have become iconic for that particular location.  The Pacific Northwest has established itself as a source for a wide variety of fresh seafood.

Oysters on the half shell, steamed mussels from Penn Cove on Whidbey Island, crab cakes, salmon, steamed clams in roasted garlic pesto, oyster shooters and fish and chips.  All fresh and locally sourced.
